"fox & friends" starts now. çó ♪ ♪ñi >> it's barry manilow. you're watching "fox & friends." >>steve: he was performing across the street over at radio city music hall and did a little video for us. do you remember that? >>brian: you were still sleeping at the time. elisabeth back for week two [cheers and applause] >>elisabeth: i cannot get to bed early enough. waking up isn't the problem. it's going to sleep. >>brian: friday you're in your game. >>steve: you will adjust.
trust me. >>brian: a little bit later we're going to find out about how to give sex advice to kids, which i basically have bailed out on. >>steve: brian told us a story earlier. one of the kids asked him a question of an adult nature. and rather than give them an answer that would have stopped things, he simply said "i don't know." what is such and such? i don't know. >>elisabeth: maybe he doesn't. >>brian: there's a lot of commercials on satellite radio that need adult explanation, and i refuse to do it. >>elisabeth: i don't blame you. >>brian: i can't be a parent all the time. >>steve: that's right. two minutes now after the top of the hour. we've got a fox news alert. hostages still being held as special terrorists try to flush out terrorists holed up in a mall inside kenya. now a first look at chilling video from inside the mall.
[gunshots] >>steve: panicked staff and shoppers running for that i have lives and gunshots -- running for their lives and gunshots heard in the background. >>brian: the military said most, not all but most of the hostages freed. at least 68 dead, nearly 200 wounded. five americans have been injured in the attack which was one of their objectives. >>elisabeth: we're live in jerusalem with the very latest. >> good morning elisabeth. as of now we're told by a source on the ground there in nairobi that there are six gunmen left inside one of the upper floors there of that mall. remember, the quote, final assault by the kenyan police began last night but it doesn't seek like they have the training, ability and equipment to take care of one of the hostage situations. that is why there is still a gunman inside and a number of hostages also inside. this began almost 24 hours ago when between 10 and 15
gunmen stormed inside the mall asking who was muslim, who was not. 60-plus people dead. that number could go higher once they have a chance to go through the mall. we have cell phone video of the moments just after the shooting began. you can hear hand grenade explosion. also gunfire there at this mall inside nairobi, kenya. the mall was patronized by a number of wealthy kenyans but also diplomats. five americans were injured. we're now learning this may be some americans on téz other side as part of that shabab group. al-shabab is a group inside somalia. the f.b.i. isñr investigating the possibility that a number of american citizens are part of theçó gunmen. >>brian: that's stunning too because we did hear al-shabab was recruiting out of minnesota.
and to think an american or somebody who was in america is over there killing people, nonmuslimsñi inside a mall in kenyañi isñiçó unbelievable. >>steve: a feed from twitter said we've got five americans. they are from the minneapolis area supposedly. also at the same time on twitter they saidñi this attack was revenge for kenya sending troops to somalia. >>elisabeth: ini 1991 when they were plagued by anarchy in somalia. they have been saying for the past two years that this would be the case, there would be moreñi attacks. >>steve: who are these al-shabab people? it is an al qaeda-linked military group formed in 2006. somalia is the primary operating base. up until the last two years they have been operating there. but they have been considered defeated. and in some measure, thanks
to special operations in the united states of america. but as we're learning this week, they are very much alive. >>elisabeth: they claimed responsibility, i think in 2010 for suicide bombings that killed 70-plus people watching the world cup at a restaurant. certainly they have not calmed down that much. this is still going on. >>brian: they said they got about 7,000 to 9,000 troops. the a.p. says less. affiliated with afghanistan. one of the trainers worked with afghanistan. they control a wide swath of the country. prior to that it was controlled by warlords, not good people to be controlled by. the islamic offshoot was an alternative. the shah rei can't -- the shraoe i -- the sharia law was not resonating in africa. they are telling everybody to look out. look back in minnesota
where the mall of america is, all around our country people are saying make sure there is no simultaneous attacks. >>steve: no kidding. more on this a little later on. right now we move on to something else. >>elisabeth: new this morning as well, who won and lost the 65th emmy awards. it kicks off with host neil patrick harris getting help from his predecessor. take a look. >> can i give you a smidge of advice? >> sure. >> look around, enjoy every second of this because there is a good chance they won't ask you back next year. >> you've got to do a song and dance thing like the tony's. a little tippy tap. >>elisabeth: what about the winners and losers? anna kooiman is following us. what happened. are you tapping away? >> "breaking bad" definitely the big winners7 of the evening, winning outstanding dramañi series before taking a final bow in its last season.
>> holy [bleep]. i did not see this coming. >> i've been blessed in the past, and this show has been nominated in the past. but what i really wanted was what we got. >> congratulations to them. the biggest shock of the night. breaking bad star lost best actor emmy to jeff daniels but noñi surprises in the best actressñr category. >> claireñr danes. >> claire danes actually won last year as well. and we can alsoñi tell you there was this performanceçó by carrie underwood of the beatles song yesterday hitting a sourñi note with the crowd. ♪çó yesterday ♪ all my troubles ♪ seemed so ♪ farñi away >> many people on social

incredible. >>brian: kerry washington was voted the most attractive -- excuse me. the best-dressed celebrity on these events. she knows what to wear and how to wear it. >>elisabeth: she does look good. >>steve: a little bit of history was a made last night. they awarded an emmy to a show that was not on television or cable -flt "house of cards" won one of the big awards. >>brian: it is on netflix. >>elisabeth: i thought carrie underwood sounded fine. >>brian: i thought she was a little off. heather nauert never off. she is on now. >> elisabeth, glad you're back for week two. just a few hours from now the united nations general assembly gets underway in new york and all the buzz is about this. a possible meeting between president obama and the newly elected president of iran. the white house says president obama is open to the meeting provided that
iran is serious about dealing with its nuclear weapons program. the two exchanged letters recently. president obama sent one congratulating rohani on his election. >> a teenager reunited with his father after being kidnapped from his home 13 years ago. his grandmother, you can see her there, is now behind bars. she is accused of snatching him when he was just a baby. police in florida say she took him while his father was at work. pat and the boy who is not being named at this point lived on the road in several states and were tracked down when she tried to enroll the boy in school claiming she was his mother and the school officials became suspicious of that. it was 69 years late but well worth the wait. a letter a soldier wrote to his infant daughter during world war ii has finally been delivered to his daughter. a woman in missouri found a letter along with a bronze star and a purple heart in
a box at a relative's house 12 years ago. no one knows how that box ended up there, but that woman made it her mission to find the soldier's daughter peggy. listen to this. >> anybody with the last name addington, or her mother's last name is cash, i would call out of old phone directories and tell them i was looking for a world war ii soldier's family. >> the private first class died during world war ii. peggy will join us at 8:20 a.m. eastern time to read that letter. among the things he said to her: always mind your mom. otherwise i'll know about it. she was just three weeks old when he wrote that. >>elisabeth: funding for the federal government runs out in a week. that is making for a wild week ahead on capitol hill. republicans in the house have already voted to fund everything except for
obamacare but president obama says he will not accept that. and it's not up for negotiation. >>steve: yeah. he called john boehner on friday night and said by the way, i'm not going to negotiate over that. why? in the past, going back to the eisenhower days when they wanted to raise money -- the government -- there's been some horse trading. why not this time? >>brian: amazing too. just to show you how off kilter i believe nancy pelosi is, minority leader in the house, she started ripping on the republican party saying from their viewpoint, they just want to take down the economy. they also say that they want to -- thing social security has no place in a free society and that medicare should wither on the vine. she believes that is the republican stance on this. >>steve: she also said the president cut the deficit in half. but according to c.b.o., it's gone up 137%. the shutdown, will it
happen? a little later. >>brian: coming up next with seven minutes until 20 minutes after the hour, do kids have questions about the birds and the bees? do they not want to ask their mom or dad? good news, the governmentwe' can answer that question. can answer that question. coming up next.w! weight watchers. because it works. join for free. offer ends october 19th.

pieces are so bad that we've already won the argument with the american people. what i'm hoping we can do, peel off some of the most damaging parts. peel off what we can, delay what we can't. also hold the line on spending. democrats want to increase spending above the statutory limits that were set. those are a few things i think we ought to insist on. >>brian: it is going to procedurally by this week by wednesday or thursday, throw it back to the house and say i like what you gave me except for the funding of obamacare. i'm going to fund that. they will throw it back to the house. what will the house do then? >> a good question. i don't know. i'm not sure the folks in the house have decided yet. my recommendation to the house, not that they need my advice, but my thought would be let's repeal some of the egregious things like the medical device tax which is costing us jobs now, maybe the conscious clause which forces institutions to provide coverage against deeply held believes. here's the question i would post: why does the
president get to unilaterally decide which parts of the bill to enforce and which ones not to enforce and grant employers a waiver when ordinary americans don't get a waiver? let's force a delay. this bill isn't ready to work. >>brian: put it back on the senate by saying we'll fund obamacare but we're going to keep to ours the medical device tax, the conscience clause and see if harry reid will sign on? >> 7 senators voted to repeal -- 79 senators voted to repeal the medical device tax. is senator reid going to shut down the government over something universal unpopular. >>brian: suburban indicates this is not the time -- senator coburn says this is not the time to bring the government to its knees. where do you stand? >> this is not the time to shut down the government. that is not where i want to go but it is not reasonable for the president and
democrats to say we're going to bust our spending limits, we're going to do nothing about a bill -- obamacare -- that is costing us jobs and undermines people's access to health care? that is not reasonable. >>brian: senator, it is going to be a fascinating week. we're up against a deadline. every day is important. senator pat toomy, thanks so much for coming in and thanks for being in our new living room. you look very comfortable there. straight ahead, kids, are you too embarrassed to ask your parents about the birds and the bees? the good news is the government will now answer those questions. for me, i'm relieved. both sides next. outrage this morning about who wasn't honored at the emmys last night. the controversy straight ahead. can you say jack klugman? ♪ ♪ ♪ my mantra?

january 2012. elisabeth, over to you and our panel today. >>elisabeth: thanks, steve. kids, have a question about the birds and the bees? don't ask mom and dad. ask big brother. that's what the a new mexico health department is saying. now teens are able to text for sex ed advice on your dime. is this a good idea or is it shutting parents out? here for a fair and balanced debate of ebony.com contributor and mama .net. a lot of parents are talking about this. explain what this is. you text in and get sex information from the government? >> parents and children both are able to text this number. questions about relationships, communication, i'm afraid to have sex. my boyfriend is pressuring me. questions that spark a conversation. >>elisabeth: is there a data base where the answers are coming from or is it a live person?
>> it's a person. it takes about 24 hours for the text to come back. >>elisabeth: this person, are they inserting personal beliefs? >> no. it's sex education via text. >> you are not comfortable with this idea, i assume? >> for a couple of reasons. first of all, any time the government is involved, you know there is a political agenda behind this no matter who is in office. second, they are cutting out the parents. my kids are asking a question. i don't know where that person, a total stranger, is coming from in their answer. there is no website that goes with this so i don't know what kind of questions they're getting. >>elisabeth: a 13-year-old could have their parents phone, send in a text. is there a trail where you could follow up where a parent can see the text and see the person who gave the advice? >> if the parents are also able to text and get the same answers back. it is not taking the parents out. i'd much prefer my child in
the future when i have one texting a health professional rather than texting their 15-year-old friend for the same advice. >>elisabeth: this isn't a health care professional. this is a representative from the government. is that your problem, janet? is it big brotherish to you? >> they are cutting out the parent. it is already hard enough to parent. so why not have a jumping off point like a website where we can answers questions with them rather than cutting us out completely. >>elisabeth: when you were 15 or 16, would you have wanted a sort of text capability to ask these questions sph >> yes. i was getting it from my older cousins. that's not the best resource for the right information. >> i asked my 16-year-old. he thought this was silly. he would rather ask his friends, ask his parents and go on the internet. >>elisabeth: obviously two different sides to the issue. we want to know what you think. you can e-mail us or send us tweets at "fox & friends" on twitter. we want to thank you two

any of our civil liberties. it turns out this independent group really is not independent. in fact, it is being run out of the n.s.a. how independent does that sound? >>brian: clapper named all the guys and even though they weren't going over independent stuff, he had a closed door meeting. we don't know what went on in the meeting because they closed the doors and didn't tell us. >>elisabeth: the weird thing is they had advanced notice to tell them they were going to tell on themselves. >>steve: they have given no hint anything is going to change and anything they bring something up at the heart of the matter, about spying on matters -- which is against the law -- you would think, we all thought, they go sorry, classified, can't talk about it. when this independent review comes out shortly, i'm sure it is going to be completely -- >>brian: they are going to hand out ten blank pages and go it was thorough. they are investigating themselves. let's go to heather nauert. let's find out what she's been doing. now she is on cavuto's desk

now as we're speaking across sections of colorado. some of the high elevations out here, the mountains, if you're doing driving, we are talking about snow pilingi up out there. the flooding we've beençó experiencing across parts of new mexico and a record monsoon season out thisñ5ñ well, we are finally seeing drierñi conditions. looking atñr aerowras of snow -- areas of snow across parts of colorado. this disturbance will be quick moving. you are going to be drying parts of the great lakes in the northeast, you are waking up to very chilly temperatures this morning. look at green bay. currently 36 degrees as you headçwi outdoors. partsçó of new england only in theñi 40's. as we head intoñi this afternoon, if you live in areas across parts of main, you're talking high temperatures only in the upper 40's like in caribou, 49 degrees is going to be as warm as it's going to be gettingñiñiçó today. 68 in new york city.ñi 70 for chicago. texas and parts of theñrñr gulf
coast temperatures in the 80's and 90's. >>brian: appreciate it maria. last night you're kicking yourself because you thought i missed a steeler come-back. fans don't kick yourself. it was all bears all the time. look at this run. that is a huge hole. steelers haven't given up that hole since terry bradshaw retired. the defenders go all the way. that would be a touchdown. the final score 40-23. ben roethlisberger, beautiful catch but would not be enough. here is the best of the rest. best big upset in a big game has to be andrew luck against his former koefrp jim harbor. they were good. what's wrong with the 49ers, they lost this game and have now lost two in a row. catch of the day, titans and chargers.
nice catch, nice throw. justin hunter pulls it down. titans win 20-17. the mets showing off brand-newñi uniforms. rookies forced to dress up like a bridal party. mets kind of bored. >>elisabeth: yuck. >>brian: an outstanding rookie has been shut down because guess what? his arm hurts. coming back on radio between nine and noon, we go over the emmys and talk to james rosen, ambassador bolten and a few more surprises coming up on "kilmeade & friends." >>steve: meanwhile on this program everyone is talking about a possible meeting between our president and the president of iran. what we're now hearing is a word about an american pastor jailed in iran for nearly a year. we're going to talk to the
calls. the most scandalous photos from rihanna's trip to thailand was this one of her posing with a slow lorus. that led police to arrest two people for illegally peddling the species. they are exotic. >>steve: saeed abedini is the american pastor wrongly held in iran for his christian faith. served nearly one year of his eight-year sentence in one of the worst prisons in iran. he has had no real communication with his family but was able to get a letter out to his daughter on her seventh birthday. >>elisabeth: he writes although governments fail, i know jesus sees the price we are paying for him. and he will gather us together as a family one day that i may see you grow up to be tall and beautiful like your mommy. so with the iranian president coming to the u.s. this week could there be a chance for freedom for saeed abedini? join us now is the pastor's
wife. two weeks ago your husband was a free -- 52 weeks ago your husband was a free man. obviously this has got to tear a woman's heart out for your husband but also for your children, they are 7 and 5? >> my daughter just turned 7. >>elisabeth: how are they? >> our whole family has been torn apart the last year. they've lost their dad. they were very close to him. and all of a sudden they've also lost me in the way i travel so much. as i was coming here, my daughter was crying and saying mommy, can you not travel? i said i'm trying to get daddy out. you have to be strong and brave. but it's been very emotional for them. their whole life has changed. >>steve: this week presents an opportunity. maybe if our president could somehow put some pressure on the iranian president, your husband could be sprung? >> exactly.
the iranian president said he's a moderate and made a lot of promises and nice words. personally, i think actions speak louder than words. so theñi iranian government wants to take steps, they should free the americans that are there. >>elisabeth: just last week heñr released several prisoners. there has to be some hope for you. there is something in a letter i read. saeed abedini said i came here to help the kids that do not have mommies and daddies but my own kids lost their daddy. it breaks my heart so much. when jacob and rebecca hear that, do they understand and do they have hope? >> i read his letter to her on the morning of her birthday and she was excited that he has written to her and i was trying to hold back tears. they knew he was there to help kid without mommies and daddies. the difficult part of it is that now they don't have a dad. i've become a single mom
and it's been a very emotional journey. >>steve: this week is your chance. if our president doesn't put any pressure on the iranian government, there is always the possibility you may run into the iranian president. you're in the same hotel? >> yes. >>steve: if you came face-to-face with him, what would you say? >> you know, i would say that he's a father and my husband is being wrongly held and i would ask for his release. >>steve: that simple. my happen over by the elevator. >>elisabeth: we have people praying for that as well across the nation. we thank you for being with us today. we are hopeful as well. >>steve: it's been too long already. straight ahead on this monday morning, still to come, obamacare was supposed to help people in their 20's and 30's but the numbers tell a different story. coming up, the four ways obamacare is sticking it to them. >>elisabeth: first, have you ever heard of the

building. up to 20 explosion have been heard from the area. as far as we know, hostages are still inside. >> brian: we've been watching this all week. 68 dead, 200 wounded, five americans have been injured in the attack. now learn some americans may have been involved in the attack and leeland is in jerusalem. hey there. >> hey, good morning, guys. exactly. sources on the ground right now are telling us that there is an operation underway as a type of rescue or attempt to flush these hostage takers, gunmen out of this mall. the picture you're looking at is taken from about 100, 150 yards away from the mall. you see the large billowing smoke coming up. we're told in the past hour or hour and a half, between 100 and 150 soldiers stormed into the mall. keep in mind, they may be called kenyan special force, but they're not trained hostage rescue teams. that's one of the things that's taking so long.
sources say there is about six gunmen left inside that very large mall. they are now trying to work their way through. in the past 48 hours, we know at least 60 people have died, possibly more. some of the video you're watching now was taken the moments after these gunmen moved in. the gunmen are from a group called al shbbab, al-qaeda link militant group in somalia that launched the mall frequented by foreigners, also by diplomats. we have heard not only from the group, but also that the united states is looking into the possibility that among the attackers are a number of americans, or at least american citizens. back to you. >> steve: right. we thank you very much. that is what some group on twitter purportedly from al shabob is claiming they could be americans. but twitter, terrorist groups are generally not verified. so we don't really know it's true. >> brian: one ranking member was killed by a drone and was an american and decided to convert
to that form of islam. heather nauert, what else is happening? >> a lot of stuff happening. let's take a live look at the united nations in new york city. that is where about one hour from now, the general assembly gets underway. the big buzz right now is about a possible meeting between president obama and the newly elected president of iran. the white house says president obama is actually open to that meeting provided that iran gets serious about its nuclear weapons program. the two have exchanged letters. president obama sent one congratulating him on his election. let you know what happens with that. two hours from now, investigators will release more details with a family of five found dead inside a texas home. the bodies of two adults and three children were discovered inside a house 40 miles outside of dallas on sunday. police say they're not looking for any suspects right now, but they won't say if it is a
murder-suicide. and to boston, the top cop is stepping down later this morning. police commissioner says he will announce that he's resigning within the next 30 to 60 days. he has a teaching job lined up at harvard, but he's also being mentioned as a possible replacement for janet napolitano as the secretary of homeland security. how about that? last night, who won and who lost as the 65th emmy awards. it all kick odd last night with neil patrick harris getting help from his predecessor. >> did -- look around, take it all in. enjoy every second of this because, i mean, there is a good chance they won't ask you back next year.

so many people are closing up their businesses or hiring only part-time help and they're taking, in some case, workers with them for 25 years and making them part-time workers. so unless something is done with obamacare, the whole country is going to be defunded. >> brian: as long as the president's name is on it, he's not going to allow this. if you're somebody who knows when to pick a fight, is this the right time to fight? >> i think it's always the right time to fight on something so important. i think you really have to do it, brian. it's something that obviously you don't want to close up government. i don't think that's going to happen. but you have no choice. he's going to have a big choice to make. i think the republicans have to unite. they're not united at all. they have to unite. if they do, they'll win. they have amazing cards. they have an amazing negotiating point here and they also have soon coming up, the debt ceiling. but this is a great negotiating tactic and a great negotiating point to get rid of obamacare.
you do have a much better chance -- i listened to the pundits, they say, you can't do it, you can't do it. you actually too have a good chance. they should hang tough and they have to unite. if they don't unite, they're not going to make it. >> steve: so what's going to happen, i think as early as wednesday, harry reid will bring up an important procedural vote. he needs 60 votes. he's only got 54 democrats and people who align with his party caucus with his party. so what are you suggesting? are you suggesting that all of the republicans follow ted cruz's lead and just not even allow this particular house bill that was passed by the house on friday, that would fund the government, but defund obamacare? you're suggesting all the republicans stay up and stay nope? >> they have to do that because obamacare is very destructive for the country. and i will tell you something, all of those democrats that are going out on a limb, they don't believe it themselves.
>> elisabeth: that's right. >> you're going to have a great election coming up for a lot of people in 14 and you just wait 'til you see. there is people that are trying to fight for obamacare, they're going toned up losing their election. you already are having it. but you'll have deeffectors in the democratic party. you're going to see. it's going to be really very interesting what happens. but you will have democrats defecting. they don't want to have to be selling obamacare 'cause they're going to lose an election if they coo it. >> elisabeth: aren't some of the democrats hoping to have the republicans stop the funding so they don't have to take the blame when it becomes a failure, though? >> they want nothing to do with this fight. they don't like this fight. they're talking very big right now, oh, they're not going to be able to do it. the fact is, the republicans are in a much stronger position than they're led to believe and they got to fight it. at worst, you're going to have tremendous numbers of democrats losing elections because -- the people don't want obamacare. they just don't want it. you look at any poll, you speak to anybody you want to speak to,
very few. 33%. that's a very small number. but i think it's way high. i think it's much -- it's a much worse number than that. >> steve: when you look at the poll, you're absolutely right. a majority of americans don't like obamacare. but look at other polls, and a majority of americans don't want the government to shut down. if the government shuts down, the republicans will take the blame. >> look at it this way, the government is going to shut down automatically if obamacare -- we can not afford obamacare. it's not even good! it doesn't work. it's too complex. it's one thing if it was fabulous and soft -- solve everybody's problems and everybody was going to get great service. the fact is, it doesn't work. so they're fighting for something that doesn't work and probably it's going to fold on its own merit. >> brian: it's absolutely true they had a terrible week. cleveland clinic, sears, saying we're going to exchanges or laying people off. we'll go over all those examples in business. and it's time for businesses to stand up for themselves. let's move to something else
that's happening on stopping traffic in new york city. the u.n. is back in session. the new iranian president comes into town. word is this will be the first opportunities since 1 president of the united states to meet with this president. should we? >> absolutely you should. i know i have a lot of republican friends that say don't meet, hard liners where they say don't meet. i guess i'm the most hard line of all. it's not weak to meet. you make deals. you do things. now, it doesn't mean weakness. you have a meeting, it may be good. it may be bad. you should take a very, very hard line, president obama, extremely hard. but he should absolutely meet. there is no question about it. i was listening to karl rove and others saying don't meet. well, karl rove hasn't done so well. >> elisabeth: isn't it that the meetings seem to be selective. he's willing to negotiate with some and not others. i think negotiating is okay. when it comes to capitol hill,
it's another story. >> i think he should meet with everybody. i'm a person that believes in meetings. whether he meets with him or meets with putin or meets with the republicans, frankly, he should be meting with the republicans all the time. if the meeting doesn't work, he should have another meeting. there is no weakness there. called negotiating. it's called deal making. but he's never made a deal before. so it's a little tough for him 'cause he's having a hard time with it. absolutely he should meet with everybody. >> brian: he did run by saying he wants to meet with our enemies. he just hasn't done it. >> steve: donald trump, exit question. by wednesday, will there be an image of our president shaking hands with the president of iran? >> well, i think he should meet with him. i think he should do it through strength. there could be that image. that image is fine. it doesn't bother me at all inasmuch you're the master of the boardroom indeed. >> beth: it was a great feature on your daughter on chris wallace's show. >> he was so nice to her and i appreciate it. i wish he'd treat me that way.
it would be fantastic. it was a great show and chris was very fair. >> steve: mr. t, thank you very much. >> thank you very much. >> steve: 13 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, controversy this morning about the president's speech at the navy yard. did he turn a solemn memorial into a political mine field? we're going to report and you will decide. >> brian: a brand-new series, we're going to show you how they're being tracked and even hacked with every move you make. >> elisabeth: i knew you were going to say that.
>> elisabeth: house republicans aren't successful in their latest attempt to defund obamacare, who will pay the bill? according to my next guest, young americans in their 20s are going to get hit the hardest. aleen singer is here with the heritage foundation. i'm looking at this list how this is affecting young americans and it's astounding. they may actually end up eating their vote for obama once they understand what's going on here. first of all, this program actually will raise insurance costs to this young set initially, right? >> yes. and on purpose. insurance premiums are going to increase for a lot of consumers. young adults will be hit the hardest. there is a provision called guaranteed issue, which forces insurers to charge artificially higher premiums to young adults than they would otherwise pay. >> elisabeth: my goodness. it also reduces access to the workplace in health insurance. correct? >> sure. so another impact of obamacare will be that the congressional budget office projects it will decrease insurance for 7 million
americans. so so much for if you like your current coverage, you can keep it. >> elisabeth: what happened to that promise there? let's talk about jobs. i think a lot of people in their 20s are coming out of college, ton of debt, looking at their job, primarily for health insurance as they look at it in years past. what will happen going forward? >> obamacare creates a lot of uncertainties for employers, but one provision that hits young adults the hardest will be the employer mandate. that forces employers with 60 or more full time workers, which under obamacare is 30 hours per week to offer affordable health coverage. if you don't. you pay a fine. employers are dropping them to part-time so they can avoid both the cost of coverage and the mandate. >> elisabeth: you're going -- the 20-year-olds may be facing part-time jobs when coming out with full degrees, right? >> right. >> elisabeth: unbleachable. what about the debt here? we talk about the bearing the bulk of the debt moving forward. don't they have enough?
>> right. we have a fiscal spending crisis with health care spending being a main contributor. on top of that, obamacare is going to spend an additional $1.8 trillion over the next ten years on just its coverage expansion provision. >> elisabeth: we're looking at jobs that aren't going to be in their face, because lot of debt on their back? >> right. future generation also be responsible for paying our national debt. >> elisabeth: why do you think this may be is not known to this young set? >> i don't know. they're just not paying close enough attention. >> elisabeth: maybe it just wasn't explained and it's a bill that's completely confusing. thank you for breaking it down. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> elisabeth: it was a big night for tv's hottest shows. we've got winners and losers and what you didn't see on stage. this soldier has everybody talking this morning. what he's watching on his cell phone that had him crying tears of joy. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing new fast acting advil.

beginning. all they need is a device like this. what is it? >> this is called a pone pad. it's used for people that are on the good side to test the security but anybody can build these to monitor transmissions happening real time. >> steve: you came in here three minutes ago. you turned it on. what are the lines of green stuff? >> you can see all the communications that are happening real time. >> steve: in this room? >> in this room. you can see everything that's transmitting now. we can look at them and go and selectively attack each one of these machines and devices. >> brian: here is the thing, you're able to do this, pick this up. you say you pick it up in hospitals. are hospitals equipped the way other security agencies are? >> no. if you look at hospitals, they're literally five to six years behind any other industry out there. manufacturing or banking industry, they've been stepping up their security over the past few years. the medical field is significantly behind the times. five to six years at least. >> steve: so because talking about hospitals, because they haven't stepped up to the new
technology, using this device and just hold that up, using that device, what could a hacker do? >> this device that we created called blackout device. literally a lot of the hospitals, what they use is basically -- >> steve: it plugs into the wall. >> plugs into the wall and a lot of the hospitals, they have concrete walls and things like that to try to penetrate through, so they can't go wireless. so they use the wireless to transmit information. >> brian: here is the thing, we thought this would help people. for example, my doctor could see if i had a pacemaker, how my heart has been acting over the last two months. so tha however, for the devious, for the dastardly, how could they use that against us? >> there is an individual who recently passed away who did a lot of research on the pace makers and they're called wireless implantable device. you can actually send signals and upload information to the actual device itself and cause a volt to charge and actually cause a person to die from 50 feet away and you can do it massively.
you can walk down the street with a backpack, walk through the street and anybody that has that type of device would automatically start short circuiting and cause the person to die. >> steve: you got to hope that the manufacturer would encrypt it. >> that's up to us. they're not seeing the type of demand they need to enforce security in any of these product lines. when they give them to the hospitals, they're like here, it works, and there is no security built in so they're wide open. when you go to the hospital, obviously, the type of information that's centralized, so when you walk in, orgeat number and badge. those are in centralized systems. so hackers can change them. prescriptions, allergies we're having. my best regies is when you go into the hospital, make sure you're getting the right dosage of medication, it's the right medication and it's good practice to check those. when it comes to technology, you're relying off of the technology keeping us alive. >> brian: we need you working for the good guys. thanks so much.

billowing from the roof. officials say militants are burning mattresses, two trysts are confirmed dead. it's not confirmed how many people are still inside. hostages are still being held. >> brian: officials now saying 62 people dead, down from 68. nearly 200 wounded. five americans hurt. now we are learning some americans may have been involved. >> elisabeth: joining us live from jerusalem with the breaking details, leeland vittert. >> hi. good morning. right now we're hearing that the al-shabab militant group who sent these guys to attack this mall may have included a number of americans in that group, about ten to 15, the original number of gunmen that entered the mall. sources say it may be down to as few as six who are in the mall. live look at the picture from about 200 yards away is where that camera that is looking at
the plume of smoke coming out from the mall. what exactly that smoke is coming from, why those explosion s happened from which side they were coming from, we don't know. we know 100 to 200 kenyan troops stormed into that mall today in an attempt to try to end it. they've launched these offenses before, but they have largely proved ineffective against these gunmen inside, for no other reason than the kenyan government and their army does not have a real hostage rescue team or special forces, per say. this is the kenyan army trying to launch these attacks. we do have cell phone video of the moments on saturday just after the initial shots were fired here at this mall. very high end mall there in the capitol of nairobi that is not only frequented by wealthy kenyan, but ex-pats, diplomats. at least five americans were hurt in this gun fire as it went off. right now we're waiting to see just how much longer it's going to take for them to move floor by floor, room by room and try
to clear everyone out of that mall. at that point we'll probably get a firm count in terms of numbers, how many dead and how many of the gunmen may still be alive for questioning. elisabeth. >> elisabeth: thank you for being with us and giving us that update here. everyone is asking, who is al-shabab? we have some information and they're al-qaeda militant group formed in 2006. somalia, the primary operating base for them. we know after their leader was oust, kenya sent troops to somalia and perhaps that's why they've been threatening retaliation in the years prior to this attack. >> brian: the leader says this is two years in coming, but all how they were ousted. they no long her a foothold into somalia and people thought good, we got rid of them. you haven't. in the u.s., in kansas city and minnesota especially, in fact, three somalian americanss, went to brooklyn, were captured, and
sent back. it seems to be attractive to go outside the core group. >> steve: despite they've launched this attack. >> brian: they said preliminaries, get out of here. non-muslims, you're in trouble. >> steve: there was this one woman who was inside the mall and a guy comes up to her with a gun and says, you can live if you will convert to islam. what she did was she recited an islamic profession of belief. he said thank you. and walked off after he gave her children chocolate canned. she lived because she said she was islamic. others died. >> brian: this is an operation sophisticated, they say, and not as great as mumbai. but right now we understand domestically, we've enhanced security here in new york city and in minnesota and in kansas city the f.b.i. is lobbing down and their sources that they've been monitoring because they want to make sure there is not a reciprocal attack here at home. >> elisabeth: you mentioned earlier the malls are something

with turret syndrome. for a while, it was the same old thing, but at thend of eighth grade, i kind of had like a little mishap, like it got really bad and stopped for a while and i was fine. in the beginning of 9th grade, started up and i was doing really good. it was my first year of high school. i got voted vice president of my entire student body. >> brian: way to go. a huge deal. >> i was on my football team and then everything kind of went downhill. >> elisabeth: what happened? >> my body -- kind of like i wasn't in control of it anymore. it would move, my body would lock up. i was leaving in a wheelchair out of my school daily. >> brian: even thinking about it is upsetting, right? >> it's crazy 'cause it makes you think about how much it's gotten better. >> steve: why do you think you were able to perform flawlessly that number on "x factor" in.

breaking details at the white house. what do we know? >> steve, the terrorist group al-shabab posted what it claims is a list of the attackers on its web site and the list includes the names of several people from this country, as well as can did and the u.k. new york republican congressman peter king says al-shabab is an al-qaeda affiliated that recruited in the u.s., primarily in somalian areas. >> f.b.i. and local law enforcement are looking into the somali american areas today, sources and resources to make sure that there is no follow-up attempt here in the united states. >> as we can see, the attack is still going on of the it's in a western-style mall. a number of americans were injured. though none with known to have been killed. it's unclear if americans are among the hostages being killed. president obama called kenya's president and secretary of state kerry bitterly condemned the
attack. >> enormous offense against everybody's sense ever right and wrong. president obama talked today, i talked to the foreign minister, ambassador, we're in close touch with everybody there, but it represents the seriousness and the breadth of the challenge that we face with ruthless and completely wreckless terrorists. >> oklahoma republican senator tom coburn says the attack undermines president obama's claim that al-qaeda is on the decline. steve? >> steve: wendell from the north lawn of the white house, thank you. coming up, senator rand paul has an idea you're going to like. he wants all of congress and the supreme court to be forced to enroll in obamacare. the senator is here. i think he's out in the hall. he'll be with us. let's go upstairs to check out what martha mccallum has brewing ten minutes from now.

>> brian: this week the plan to cut off funding for the president's health care bill heads from the house to the senate. >> elisabeth: does it stand a chance? we are joined now by kentucky senator rand paul. welcome. >> good morning. >> elisabeth: great to see new person. really right now we're facing a shut down or not. what's the plan, coming from you? what's the alternative to
obamacare? >> i think we shouldn't give it a penny. i think it's a disaster and hurt the people it intended to help. i'm against it from top to bottom and i won't vote to fund it. >> elisabeth: can you be against obamacare and not for a government shut down? >> absolutely opposed to a government shut down as well. i think that's a bad idea. so i think really we fight it out and we'll see in the end the democrats have the senate and the presidency. it will be difficult ultimately to overcome them, but i think we should use the leverage of controlling the house, the republicans were elected in the house. we were elected to do something. they want -- people want us to stand up and fight obamacare, so we should. really the president has it exactly backwards. he says if republicans don't get 100% of what they want, they're going to shut down government. it's completely the opposite. he wants 100% of obamacare. he's unwilling to compromise. if he doesn't get 100% of obamacare, the president is going to shut down government. >> brian: you're with ted cruz. however, you're not convinced there is an end game that's going to see obamacare defunded. if that is the case, you have
another idea. you believe that obamacare should be for everybody. for example? >> i think congress should never exempt themselves from a law. but then again, i think john roberts, he loves obamacare so much. >> brian: supreme court justice. >> he should get it. he's getting a sobbed dee. he's not -- subsidy. he's not part of obamacare. he makes us get obamacare, but he's exempt. so i have an amendment that i will introduce that we have written up and we will introduce that says all the federal government gets obamacare, including federal employees and including john roberts. >> brian: it will cost an extra $700 or more per family and the staffers are making minimum salaries. a lot of them do it for the benefit. >> i'm not excited about doing that to staff or federal employees. but if the president thinks obamacare is a good idea and john roberts thinks he can twist the constitution and make obamacare constitutional, he ought to get it. >> elisabeth: what about the middle lane? if there is not funding
obamacare, or if it is exactly funded, is that a slow road to eventually having no cash here anyway? >> right. what i've said is defunding obamacare is where we should start. that's what we're for. that's what the people who voted for us are for. we may not get everything we want, so i acknowledge that. the president wants 100% of obamacare. we want zero. maybe we make it less bad through a compromise. if the republicans pass defund, democrats continue to fund. maybe there could be a compromise where we got rid of some of the tacks and get rid of some of the bad parts. >> elisabeth: is that possible? >> maybe. but you have to have a very quick conference committee, lin, on the republican side and democrats would have to come together and say we're willing to compromise and we have a conference committee. >> brian: october 11 coming quick. senator paul, stay right here. back with more rand paul and us in three minutes ht.
